Our 49th Wedding Anniversary!


Why oh why does blogger have to play up when I am in a hurry to post this card before hubby surfaces.
Anyway.... this is for our 49th wedding anniversary tomorrow...eek...where have the years gone!!!! Each one seems to go faster than the the one before.....not fair when I'd prefer them to slow down, lol.
This was all done in a rush cos hubby kept lurking around while I was making it

The Paper is from a very old (appropriately) Crafty Secrets pad found in a neglected drawer.
I cut around the rose to overlap the scroll - I thought it would be a shame to cover it up.
The image is a freebie from a vintage site....don't remember which one.
Ribbon, messy bow, lace -  flower  made a while ago, so apart from printing the image all was collected from my stash.

I am so pleased to see that 'Funky Junkie' Linda has started a new challenge blog,  Frilly & Funky , and the first challenge is..... what is your vintage style.....I am definitely a 'Frilly' - I haven't got to grips with steampunk, mainly I guess because I don't posesss any steampunky style stuff.

Crafty Calendar - March challenge - spring clean
Crafty Cardmakers #64 - time - well!!! I'm pushing it here but 49 years IS a long TIME, lol

Thank you for stopping by
Cheers me dears

Absolutely stunning Irene, as your cards always are!
You already know how much I love your vintage style, I only wish I could achieve something half as good.
It's our 40th anniversary this year, but not until December, so I can still pretend I was a child bride for a while.
